I also messed with that button until I realized I had not even created an item so I stopped. It looks like the multi file upload feature at youtube (whose versions of my creations's video and sound match up, unlike my videos here that are not synchronized at all and are unwatchable)

I tried using Filezilla for a while but no one could explain the creation or replacment of important files with one caled 452345234~ftpadasdf or whatever it was. No response from anyone on that so I gave up.

I am only trying to do the right thing but it's hard not to get angry...

for:
"replacment of important files with one caled 452345234~ftpadasdf "
that was due to the FTP initial import not working well (or the item is old enough that it was able to use the prior checkout/FTP/checkin system).

at any rate, it is an FTP partial upload "turd" so the item was checked in or uploaded before FTP could finish writing to disk. the old checkout system is gone. for new items uploading with FTP, i now have it "stop" the upload so long as one or more "turd files" still exist (ie: will require a wait and reload kind of thing until FTP writes. the FTP s/w is (IMHO) flakey 3rd party and one reason we kicked the checkout/in system to the curb.

Many of the new tools at the Archive are not optimized for people who upload into the netlabels section for whatever reason. My apologies for that. I'll see if there's any way that we can get some kind of 'upload into specific collection' added in there.

So, FTP upload with:

http://www.archive.org/create/ITEMNAME

...where ITEMNAME is your item name is still preferred upload method for netlabels for now. If that changes, I'll yell.

Thanks,
Simon.
